Mrs. Patti Kammeyer, a former teacher at Antwerp Local School, founded the Academic Boosters in 1991 for the purpose of promoting and acknowledging academic excellence among Antwerp Middle and High School students. Through community contributions and organization fundraisers, the Boosters sponsor quarterly perks and year-end trips for qualifying students, provide a book scholarship for qualifying seniors, and contribute to organizations (like quiz bowl and student council) and classrooms when needs arise.
